Issue
Unable to configure gateway
Unable to configure
Default route Default route missing
Cause
The switches Management Interface Setup Wizard does not offer the ability to configure a Gateway for the Administration
interface.
Using the VLAN Interface to modify or create a Manual IP address for an Administration interface does not provide a
Gateway setting option.
You can only access the switches administration from an IP subnet directly connected to the switch.
Resolution
Configuring gateway via Telnet:
1. Locally connect to the switch CLI interface.
2. Telnet into the switch:
NOTE: If the device is not connected to the network, or no DHCP server exists use the default IP
address (labelled on the device).
• Default IP Address: 169.254.52.86
• Default Username: admin
• Default Password: no password is required (blank)
NOTE: If connection is refused the telnet service may have been disabled from the Web
Administration.
3. Configure the gateway using ipsetup command.
Syntax: ipsetup { dhcp | ip-address ip-address { mask | mask-length } [ default-gateway
ip-address ] }
Parameters:
• dhcp: Specifies the interface to obtain an IP address through DHCP.
• ip-address ip-address: Specifies an IP address for VLAN-interface 1 in dotted decimal notation.
• mask: Subnet mask in dotted decimal notation.
• mask-length: Subnet mask length, the number of consecutive ones in the mask, in the range of 0
to 32.
• default-gateway ip-address: Specifies the IP address of the default gateway or the IP address
of the outbound interface. With this argument and keyword combination configured, the command not
only assigns an IP address to the interface, but also specifies a default route for the device.
Example:
ipsetup ip-address 192.168.1.2 24 default-gateway 192.168.1.1
Configuring gateway via Web Administration:
At software release R1109, and later releases, the gateway can be entered using the configuration
wizard.
1. Login to the Web interface.
2. On the left of the Web page, from the navigation tree, select Wizard to enter the
configuration wizard homepage.
3. Click Next button until you enter the Management IP Interface configuration page.
4. Configure a manual IPv4 address, including a Gateway address as shown below:
5. Complete Wizard pages to finish.
6. Permanently save Wizard changes, using the Save link at the top right of the administration
page. The gateway setting is shown as the default route entry in the IPv4 routing summary.
Configuring default route via Web Administration:
NOTE: A default route is used to forward packets that match no entry in the routing table.
Without a default route, the packet is discarded. An IPv4 static default route has both its
destination IP address and mask being 0.0.0.0.
If preferred to use routing administrator then configure a Default Route under the IPv4 Routing,
as this also specifies a gateway for the device administration.
1. Select Network > IPv4 Routing from the navigation tree.
2. Click the Create tab to enter the IPv4 static route configuration page as shown below.
3. Type 0.0.0.0 for Destination IP Address.
4. Select 0 (0.0.0.0) from the Mask drop-down list.
5. Type IP Address for Next Hop.
6. Click Apply. After Applying the default route permanently save it, using the Save link at the
top right of the screen.
7. Click on Summary tab to view routing settings summary as shown below:
Unable to configure Default route:
NOTE:
• If the default route is not in the summary, it is most likely there is no switch port with the
default route VLAN connected and up. This will also result in no entry for the default route
Destination IP subnet in the summary table.
• The default route is not the one just configured. This means there is more than one default
route configured on the switch. It is recommended that only one default route be configured at
any time. Check the Remove routes screen to view all configured static entries
1. Connect the appropriate switch port to the default router.
2. Remove previous default route entries until only one default route is remaining as shown
below.
